Description

Included in: History of Science and Technology Collection

Correspondence, letterpress copybooks, manuscripts, notes, clippings, pamphlets, printed matter, scrapbooks, notebooks, certificates and financial papers documenting this naturalist's long and varied career. The papers cover a wide range of topics including natural history, zoology, ornithology, geography, geographic distribution, botany and wildlife conservation. The extensive correspondence files include prominent individuals from many of the fields noted above, including Merriam's sister Florence Bailey, Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, and Vernon Bailey, to name just a few. The papers document Dr. Merriam's long association with the United States Biological Survey and other surveys beginning with the Hayden Survey of the Rocky Mountain West in 1872 through the Harriman Alaska Expedition of 1899. Also included are papers on his involvement, beginning in 1891, in the Bering Sea controversy over seal hunting. Among the subject files are a large group of files on bears of North America and files on geographical distribution and the development of Dr. Merriam's Life Zone Theory
